First Amendment Rights?

Why supporting violent sites is counter survival.

Ideal Gender Equality

I see a lot of attempts to have more females in computer technologies such as programming. I hold a firm view that whoever does the job they should be equally paid. To me that does not mean I expect to see a drive to get more females in what are traditionally more dangerous jobs or […]

Men, Freedom and Happiness

Growing up and seeing different social, political and geographical environments, never mind travelling all over, have been a great learning experience. For a young boy the world can be a huge adventure waiting for him to conquer it. In my case I grew a certain moral aptitude and ineptness at the same time. Maybe it’s […]

The right to work and school shootings

What I find interesting is that in ancient Rome a child between 12 and 14 would get some sort of position that they could hold and in effect were made part of society as an active contributor. What is more interesting is that they did not have any juvenile delinquency. If you look back, or […]

Online News – Liability or Asset?

Today I stumbled upon the idea that as we switch more and more towards getting news online, we also get less and less disagreeing or opposing views. This is mainly due to the fact that we can and mostly subscribe to things that interest and mostly agree with our personal views. I think it is […]

John Ridley, Virginia Tech, Iraq and the news media

There is a huge misunderstanding as to what constitutes news worthy. The argument that people have the right to know is so abused it is not funny. I’d say to anyone ruining peoples lives for no other reason than it being news worthy or the right for the people to know, let’s display Your used […]

DRM is not for stopping piracy…

In an article in ARS Technica (http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070115-8616.html) we find the headline “Privately, Hollywood admits DRM isn’t about piracy”. This is a very telling article showing what we have been thinking all along, Hollywood studios execs knows a lot about greed and avarice [An excessive or inordinate desire of gain; greediness for wealth]. It is one […]
